Poem about loving someone and how badly they can hurt you

On my satin sheets
As I wait in vain
Where are you
Not home again
I lie here and cry
But nobody will see
You’re out with her
But what about me
Why do you lie
Your phones off again
Your battery’s flat
My heart’s in pain
My black satin dress
I wear for you
But you don’t see it
You never do
Ying and Yang
That’s what you say
What do you tell her
When you’re away
You make it worse
You lied to me
The pain you cause
You just don’t see
Shall I look for solace
In the arms of another
Look for love
In the embrace of a lover
Tears come along
When I’m alone
Never to be seen
By another soul
Leave if you wish
I won’t beg you to stay
But you’re the one
Who’ll rue the day
I’m a good person
I’m losing my fears
I don’t need you
And I don’t need the tears

A very moving poem.

What a sad lonely place to be. No one should have to cry alone without a shoulder or some comfort.

Is it so wrong to find some comfort in the arms of a lover ?

Keep going better days will come for you

More writing soon please

thank you for your kind words. it is indeed a sad lonely place to be but most people do cry alone. the lucky ones have a shoulder to cry on. being in the arms of a lover is a comfort but sometimes adds to the reasons to cry, bit of a vicious circle. hope better days will come for everybody in that position. more writing soon when i unjuggle it all from my brain to some semblance of sense......

A sad place to be... yes. But a place most of us have been and learned from. And we've come out of it a much stronger person, so remember that! Unfortunately, sometimes we fall in love with the wrong person and allow these feelings to rule our actions, forgetting that this other person will never change their ways for us. We have to make the changes.

A lovely write with strong emotional imagery. Thank you for sharing.......Jerry

Merry Christmas!

A wonderful poem. Many women and men are actually going through something like this. you get to the point where enough is enough and you find the courage to go on.

This one made me mad! Its a horrible feeling to be home waiting and knowing. This one was awesome! I could feel the emotions - the bitterness, anger, resolve.

Fri, May 9th, 2008 3:11am


lacey it is a horrible feeling it is also gut wrenching and sickening but....jealousy is another one, asking the question why can it not be me?
i am so pleased you thought this awesome.
take care
your friend

this is so hurtful.....so intense....
i have seen people suffering with same betrayal and in these cases , they r with their careers and profession completely ignoring the needs (Physical and Emotional needs) of their partners....

what is the fault of the person who has dedicated his/her life to this sweet relation.....??

I feel such 'characters' do suffer lots later in their lives....

Fri, June 20th, 2008 3:31am


pratibha sometimes they cannot see and i think sometimes they just dont want to see..and sometimes they see when it is too late to save.

Sat, June 21st, 2008 6:48am


i know i sounded 'mean' but i feel so sad to see a love filled heart break into zillion pieces because some jerk decided to play with it like a football

Fri, June 20th, 2008 3:32am


you could never sound or be mean. i understand the point you were trying to make. :). the good thing about a love filled heart is that there is enough love in it to find someone else in the world to share it with.

This is such a sad poem...
I hope you're doing much better.
I might know how it feels, though its not the same thing, or in the same manner. Its so painful to be in such a situation.

Beautiful poem.Very well written.

Take care..^^
